A woman and two children of the same family were killed in alleged Russian or Syrian regime airstrikes on Arnaba, Idlib governorate, on May 4th, 2019, according to local sources.
According to the White Helmets, “two children were killed and a child was seriously injured as a result of a military airstrike near a school and a mosque in the centre of the village of Arnaba in Jabal Al Zawiya. Immediately, the Civil Defense went to the site of the raids.”
The Syrian Network for Human Right wrote that “the child Majed Abdullah Al Ahmad and his sister An’am, aged respectively 10 and 20, were killed as fixed-wing warplanes we believe were Russian fired missiles on Arnaba village in Jabal Al Zawiya area in Idlib governorate southern suburbs, on May 4.”
On May 5th, Hasan Al Ahmad wrote on Facebook that “the death of the child Ibrahim Ahmed Al Ahmad from the village of Aranba resulted into three martyrs [caused by] the Russian bombing that targeted the centre of the village yesterday.”
Local sources reported that the missiles, also described as rockets, caused damage to the Arnaba Primary School and the Omar Bin al Khattab Mosque when they struck near the buildings.
Whereas most sources blamed Russian airstrikes, TRT Arabic pointed to the regime while @HalabTodayTV blamed both Russia and the regime.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
